Students learn another group Musical Theatre number in their ‘ensemble’ class. All of these pieces will be performed for an audience of friends and family on the evening of their final day!

We aim to provide an inclusive, supportive and fun environment in which the students can broaden their skills and technique in all areas of performing arts. Focus will be on developing good practise across all aspects of rehearsal and performance technique, including safe practise in the studio and on-stage, improving from and offering peer feedback in rehearsals and expanding on their own experience on stage, with a particular emphasis on stage craft and confidence building for those who need it. For the more experienced performers in the group, we will aim to provide opportunities for them to showcase their skills and for those interested in the creative side (costume/prop design and/or technical theatre, i.e. lighting and sound), they will have a chance to be involved behind the scenes, as they prepare for the much anticipated performance Heathfield School’s very own Theatre.

What the parents say

We were extremely grateful to have the opportunity to have both girls attend summer camp this year. I can’t say enough how much they loved every minute. There is so much to do and learn. Couldn’t be more impressed!

Julia

This is my first experience of the Summer Camp and I am amazed at how professionally organised it has been. Florence has so much enthusiasm in the morning and when I pick her up.

Michelle

Great fun and with a good variety of activities and helpful and friendly staff. I would recommend it to other parents because my daughter had such a great week.

Mother of Ella

The flexibility of combining the day camp with occasional weekly boarding have enriched her experience at summer camp and been invaluable as a taster for boarding school life.

Cathy

I can’t believe what you achieve with these girls every week and every year, all the things they bring home, the shows and the exhibitions – amazing!
